that sent wave across the east coast is being felt by relief agency offices in the bay area. fema's area 9 is head quartered here in oakland. so far a ten person team was sent to help with sandy relief efforts. emergency supplies from the moffet field depot could also be shipped east. 30 red cross volunteers the bay area have deployed to help and up to 100 more could leave in the coming days. the red cross is asking you to pitch in by donating blood. >> it's one of the most concrete things i can do because i graduated college two years ago and financially that's not really -- i can't give money but i can give blood. >> red cross leaders say blood is needed because power outages have forced the cancellations of blood drives on the east coast. >> we have source now spreading south out of the north bay. here we have the golden gate bridge. rain in nevado, in santa rosa, in napa. the satellite or radar loop, you can see that rain moving in over the peninsula. reports of rain out in ocean beach as well. drizzle showing up in san francisco, downtown, reports of sprinkles out toward lafayette.
